The Marble Mountains is a group of 5 mountains (Hills) made up of marble and limestone located between Da Nang and Hoi An. The mountains are known as the Five Element Mountains named: Metal (Kim), Water (Thuy), Wood (Moc), Fire (Hoa) and Earth (Tho). Many of the caves within the mountain have been decorated and utilised as temples and Buddhist sanctuaries for hundreds of years. The largest of the sanctuaries is the Ling Ong Pagoda and shrine located within a large cave on Thuy.

Hoi An was a major oriental port for trading ships from Japan, China and the West during the 16th and 17th centuries and became the meeting place for a wide range of merchant traders. As a result, the old town in Hoi An has a diverse mixture of architectural styles and today is considered a living museum of architecture and urban lifestyle.
